STRETCH ARMSTRONG PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

 

Note: The Stretch Armstrong product range is exclusive to Walmart in North America (U.S. & Canada) and available at various retailers in Latin America (specific details by country can be provided).

 

Primer on the Flex Power system:

 

Flex Power is an innovative technology that really delivers the “action” in action figures! Each of the Flex Fighter figures has a fleeeexible body that can be stretched like a rubber band, storing energy that can be then be released to power different things (vehicles, disc launchers, rocket launchers, etc.).

 

The Flex Power Heroes are the core of the “Flex Power” line.  The three Flex Fighter figures are Jake “Stretch” Armstrong, Ricardo “Omni-Mass” Perez and Nathan “Wingspan” Park, each with stretchable bodies that power their equipment.  These three are available in the basic opening “Flex Power Heroes” assortment with a very unique flexible “TRY ME” package and select figures are available in the Flex Power vehicles, which include two motorcycle-type Flex Power vehicles and the Flex Power Mobile HQ.

 

In addition to the core Flex Power Heroes, most every other product in the Stretch Armstrong product line has stretchable and flexible elements to it, delivering authentic flextastic fun.

 

Product Details:

Stretch Armstrong Flex Power Heroes

Each Flex Power Heroes figure has accessories and a signature action.  The three core Flex Power Heroes (Stretch Armstrong, Omni-Mass, and Wingspan) have flexible bodies that allow them to “power” their Flex Power gear, enabling them to streeetch, release, and launch discs and missiles.  Stretch Monster throws boulders, while Quick Charge and the ultra-mysterious and ninja-like Blind Strike each have flexible projectiles that launch from their unique accessories.  It’s flextastic fun!

Stretch Armstrong Stretch Power Vehicle Assortment

Each Flex Power Vehicle comes with a unique vehicle powered by streeeetch action provided by the Flex Power hero.  Just strap the character in, pull back to activate, and release the power of flexibility.  Stretch Armstrong’s FLEXYCLE zooms across the floor, while Omni-Mass SMASHCYCLE can pound enemies into submission. It’s flextastic fun!

Stretch Armstrong Flex Power Mobile HQ

The Flex Power Mobile HQ comes with a Stretch Armstrong figure and a whole lot of flextastic action that can be activated in and around the vehicle.  By putting the figure into position, kids can streeetch and release to activate the boulder-launcher on the top of the vehicle, the removable disc launcher in the cockpit, or practice their targeting ability on the flip-down doors.

Daniel Pickett

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com,
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
